I know that KDE does have an autostart-feature,
not familiar with Gnome, though. You could, however,
create a .xsession / .xinitrc file in your home that
starts that app before Gnome (which one to chose
depends on how you log-in).


Cheers,
Tink

I have a shell window automatically opening when I log in. The way I found to do that is to logout from KDE while apps are still open. I also have the "Restore previous session" option selected in kcontrol -> KDE Components -> Session Manager.

LOL!

Well in that case he should interpret my post as a suggestion to switch to KDE.

i found it ; thanks for the help.

its buried deep.
start panel
preferences
more preferences
session;

on the session window there is a start program tab. you add you program to that and it start on loggin.

CAVIAT: if you do not shut down the program be for you log out; it hangs the log out. cntl-alt=backspace get you out.
